View dismissal SE Marsh b Ntini 23 17 3 1 135.29
5.5 bowled 'im, he's gone for the pull, has been beaten by pace again and played onto his stumps, that's a huge wicket, Ntini goes into an aeroplane celebration, Marsh had just got a four and he's tried to pull here, he hasn't been comfortable with pulling through this innings, pays the price here, Chennai well and truly bossing this game now 34/4
View dismissal JR Hopes c †Patel b Ntini 2 5 0 0 40.00
1.3 that's gone, Ntini strikes with a wide one, Hopes slashes hard at a wide one but that's moving away from the right-hander, thick top-edge goes at an easy height to Parthiv, they're cock-a-hoop, Ntini would admit that was a poor ball but it's produced a wicket. Chennai won't complain. 8/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c †Patel b Gony 3 4 0 0 75.00
2.2 that's another big one! Sangakkara has walked there. Angling away from the left-hander and only a half-hearted appeal from Gony, nothing from Parthiv behind the stumps but the batsman walks. Is this his Gilchrist moment? Semi-final of a big tournament, he's edged to the keeper and walked. What a start for the Super Kings. 11/2
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh* c Muralitharan b Gony 4 8 0 0 50.00
4.4 Yuvraj is gone now, what a catch from Murali, slightly short and he's rocked back to pull it ferociously, that was bulleting through midwicket but Murali has intercepted that brilliantly, Gony is ecstatic and Murali is prancing around, this is surely trouble for Punjab. 28/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c †Patel b Morkel 8 10 1 0 80.00
9.5 he's dangled the carrot and Mahela is lured straight into the trap, not too short, a bit of width, Mahela tries to be too cute by steering that to third man but a meaty edge goes at a comfortable height to Parthiv, the wheels are coming off here, Chennai on a roll 45/6
View dismissal IK Pathan run out (Ntini/Gony) 3 12 0 0 25.00
8.2 Gony to Jayawardene, what a mess up! irfan Pathan has attempted a reckless third run and is stranded, here's what happened: Mahela drives on the up towards backward point and that appeared to be racing away for four, Ntini, at third man, lets out a diving stop, makes sure the ball is in the field as he tumbles over the rope and gets up to retrieve it, Irfan meanwhile has thought of a third but Ntini is quick enough to throw it back to the bowler's end, Gony does the rest and Pathan can only give a clueless expression. Jayawardene had taken off for the third, by the way. But suddenly stopped. Pathan didn't see that. Whodunnit? 40/5
View dismissal WA Mota c Raina b Morkel 25 26 2 0 96.15
18.6 Oh you cracker! Suresh Raina has pulled off a peach of a catch at long-off, lofted straight, that was high on the bat and ballooned up towards no-man's land but Raina is quick, sprints towards it, puts in the dive and plucks out a low chance, they're not letting up here 98/8
View dismissal PP Chawla b Muralitharan 12 15 1 0 80.00
13.4 you little beauty! tossed up the straighter one, Chawla tries to swing it away to the leg side but is completely foxed by the flight, it's fullish and beats the wild swing, the stumps are disturbed and Murali has the 1000 Watt smile to celebrate 63/7
